Design Summer 11 (Berlin) was held from July 29 to August 9, 2019. For the first week, we invited Annik Troxler and Patrick Thomas to give lectures at Berlin. Then, we led students on a field trip from Berlin to Prague. The year 2019 marks the 100th birthday of the Bauhaus. Our tour was specifically designed to explore and research all aspects of the Bauhaus in Germany and capitalize on the many special exhibitions that have been put up to celebrate occasion. We therefore traveled to Dessau, Weimar and Leipzig, visiting Prof. Markus Weisbeck and Prof. Marcus Dreßen before we closed our tour with some laid back time in the picturesque medieval city of Prague.
